I know two guys who were very opinionated, one an argo dealer, the other a max dealer. One day the argo dealer bought a max II to play with.. the max dealer added the argo line to his sales. One of my riding buddies traded his maxII for an argo frontier. I've got an argo 8 and would like to have a max II as a second vehicle.
Your best bet is come to a group ride or at least test drive both. Whatever you get, you may change your mind down the road and want something else. Your intended uses might suit a certain model.
There are a lot of differences between the two, and each has its strong point. Your choice should hinge on what you'd like to accomplish with the machine. Do you plan on using the AATV for simply recreational use, or do you plan on doing a lot of work/ hauling/towing with it? How many people do you plan on carrying? The MaxIV is a great machine, and I think you can now (or soon) get the 29 EFI Liquid cooled Kawasaki in it. Likewise, the Argo Avenger has an EFI option as well (drool...) but it's about 3 days longer than the Max IV.
I don't own either a Max (technically) or an Argo, so I can't speak from experience, but I've been in each. In my opinion, an incredible amount of R&D has gone into the new Argo line, and it appears to have paid off. That doesn't mean that the Max II or Max IV are any less capable, but the newer Argos are a bit more refined.
Not that I should even be talking about "refinement"...
The ultimate solution is to find a local dealer and try to test ride each. A dealer should be very ambitious about allowing you to test the machine in all sorts of terrain, and by the end of the ride(s), you'll have your answer...
